The commercial quality made in freeware. I've been following this project for ten years. It's still under work. It's still improving. but however it's not complete, it's still interesting. In five words, it's just G.R.E.A.T.
broken. I LOLd. Critical defect which prevents load/save/options to work on Windows 6.0+ persists for 3(!!) years and no one cares to patch that? Also, new issue reports are being deleted as duplicate of older issue which is still open/unassigned/no resolution. No wonder what this project sucks.
Very cool project, with very nice graphics, which is very rare in FOSS games.
Please note that you must have GiGi installed to compile the source -- GiGi is not common among any operating systems and you will likely have to install it manually. It can be found on sourceforge (why they don't simply integrate the GiGi with FreeOrion through git/svn is a mystery to me -- especially sizne at least tzlaine is working on both projects).
If every completed, will be a nice game.
